Badami is yet another historical place in north Karnataka in India. And like Hampi it was the capital of another very powerful and cultured dynasty, the Chalukyas. This photo was taken atop Badami fort where tourists flock to see this temple. Somehow I got left behind and by the time I reached top others were near temple. I just stood back and shot!
Photographer: Abhishek Asthana (Hyderabad, India) Registered
Abhishek Asthana is a coder by profession, which lets me make sufficient money to buy a lens once in a while and sponsor my vacations. He started photography during his school days with a small manual camera which didn’t have flash. Later he started experimenting with monochrome films, since he didn’t have scanner or much idea about editing of photos this experiment was quite limited in nature. He took photography seriously only after leaving college and got his first digital camera, an Olympus FE10 which was followed by Sony DSC H7 super zoom. His first and only DSLR is Nikon D3000 with a recently bought Sigma 18-200 mm lens. He tried hand at bird photography (with a Nikon 80-400 mm lens) and quite enjoyed it too and He thinks He does not have any particular genre that he can tag his photography with but he enjoy shooting life, people and common everyday happenings around us most. Apart from photography he likes adventure activities, trekking and volunteering. He is co-founder of http://DonateYourPC.in, a website that lets people donate their old PCs/peripherals to charities/schools in India.
